Power Through Love #3

The greatest release of power and faith possible
is to be totally convinced God loves you.

In all things we are more than conquerors 
through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37

In Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor 
uncircumcision avails anything, but faith 
working through love.  Gal 5:6

In these two verses, Paul connects our victory
with God's love for us. Indeed, this whole
concept of sanctification is all about love.

Paul says the life of Christ was released in
him through a faith that worked by love:
I have been crucified with Christ; 
it is no longer I who live, 
but Christ lives in me; 
and the life which I now live by the faith 
of the Son of God, who loved me and gave 
Himself for me.  Galatians 2:20 (Darby)

Paul also says this:
God loved you even when you were 
dead in sins. 
And now that you trust his love, 
he gives you resurrection power. 
But God, 
who is rich in mercy, 
because of His great love with which He
loved us
even when we were dead in trespasses,
made us alive together with Christ. 
Eph 2:4,5
David Wilkerson the whole paper!

Reader, if we could but grasp the unconditional
love of God, the word, "why" would disappear
from our vocabulary.

We see through a glass darkly, 
but then face to face. 1 Cor 13:12

My grace is sufficient for you,
for power is perfected in weakness.
2 Cor 12:9
